Kakuta coy over Hamburg link

The Blues have already seen three promising youngsters lured to

Germany by their former sporting director Frank Arnesen. Since

swapping life at Stamford Bridge for that in the Bundesliga,

Arnesen has wasted no time in raiding his former employers for

players of potential. Michael Mancienne and Jacopo Sala have moved

to Germany on permanent deals, while Jeffrey Bruma has joined on a

season-long loan. French winger Kakuta is said to be next on

Arnesen’s wish list, with the 19-year-old yet to hold down a

regular role at Chelsea. He took in a spell at Fulham last season

and is aware that first-team opportunities may be limited again in

2011/12. Kakuta is, however, tied to a long-term contract with the

Blues and insists he has no immediate plans to make another move.

“I have a contract with Chelsea until 2015,” he said. “I know Frank

Arnesen well and he has been good to me. “I am not aware that he

wants me in Germany.”
